Top Destinations to Visit in August

For all you budding tourists who have dreams of travelling around the world so as to experience the different cultural aspects of various countries, there is no better time to fulfil your plans than the month of August. In countries such as those close to the equator, the climate gets annoyingly hot and stuffy making it not too feasible for tourism. On the positive side, travel and lodging rates directly fall owing to the drop in demand.

On the other hand, countries with colder climates become more pleasant travel destinations as the relatively warmer climate leads to a very inviting weather, perfect for a relaxing vacation. To help you with your travel plans, we have listed some places that we feel are best visited during the month of August. So make sure the international holiday packages you opt for includes the places listed below:

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

During this time, the place is guaranteed to be very warm, making it the perfect time for visitors and locals to experience the warm sands of the beaches or maybe take a relaxing nap on the poolside. If you’re the type who’s looking to visit museums and cathedrals, then Ocho Rios is not your ideal travel destination. However, if you’re the type who’s looking to while some time away with amazing drinks while resting your feet on warm sands then few places can compete with the charm and allure of Ocho Rios during this time of year.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
